I have been teaching the violin/fiddle to children and adults for 9 years. My speciality is in teaching young children and youth. I do teach methods that are appropriate to their level, whether they are beginners or have been playing for a while. I love teaching adult beginners as well, we all need a good start with a firm technique base for left and right areas (violin and bow) of playing the violin. I teach from the concept of Musicianship: warm ups to prevent injury, correct techniques for playing, and using theory books and violin method books that are creative and easy to follow and understand, both for children and adults. I teach note-reading as well as aural learning because a student, young or older, needs both music notation and ear training to gain the best possible perspective on learning this instrument and having fun. As a teacher, I love being creative in lessons, it's very important and helps the student to assimilate the techniques and pieces so they can move forward in their violin or fiddle journey. My husband and I have a violin shop where we rent, sell, service and restore violins and bows in North County, San Diego. Once you schedule lessons with me you can contact me for details on renting a violin (fiddle) for yourself or your child. The violins we rent and sell are professionally set up by my husband who is a trained luthier. We also have all the necessary accessories you will need such as rosin, shoulder rests, tuners, various chin rests to select. We "custom" fit you to your instrument for comfort and playability. We encourage a free meet-up here at my studio to get you set up for a rental once you purchase lessons with me. This would be for either a child (with the parent) or an adult.
I love teaching strings. Violin is my main instrument. I focus heavily on bow technique. I have gotten students into youth orchestras and passed college auditions. I like to use the Essential Elements and Suzuki books. I also offer online group lessons at a highly discounted price. I suggest that all my students join. This is a great option for kids while class is out.
Violin is a complex art, one that takes many years to develop, but can be one of the most rewarding experiences in your life. Despite its challenges, love for the violin and music should never take a back seat in a lesson, That is what I will focus on. Nevertheless, there are methods and techniques crucial to violin playing that I will also keep at the forefront. At the end of the day, students have their own unique voice that I will try to nurture while at the same time teach them the fundamental tools to achieve it. Whether just starting out or already playing for many years, I will strive to do what is best for the student. To all of you, I wish you best of luck with violin and hope you can join me in making music!
Classical, traditional method and Suzuki method. Studied with Dr. John Kendall, founder of the Suzuki method for the United States. Have played with Southern Illinois University orchestra and the St. Louis Symphony exhibition concert. Have performed in Europe, North America and Asia.
Having taught and performed for over 30 years, I have had the pleasure of working with students of all levels and ages. For beginning students, you can expect to be playing and learning to read music within your first month of taking lessons. I am happy to say that my intermediate and advanced students have met goals of preparing for auditions with success, performance events, and simply studying new technique and repertoire for their own pleasure. I look forward to meeting and sharing your musical endeavors!
